Smog Reduction: But what about LA sunsets?

The EPA is taking the current ground level ozone limitations to task. On Thursday, they announced their intention to reduce the standard from .075PPM to between .060 and.070PPM in the next twenty years. Though the price-tag is estimated at $90 billion annually, the projected healthcare savings of $13-$90 billion should soften the impact. While the more toxic of US counties, namely Los Angeles, Houston, and a handful in the northeast, are allotted more time to comply with the revised standard, the American Petroleum Institute has raised objections. Go figure. Definitely a encouraging prospect. Now make it so.
